Diablo 3 Inferno Difficulty: Even Harder Than Testers Wanted
Speaking in a video interview with IGN, Blizzard rep Jay Wilson discussed tuning the difficulty for “Inferno” mode. Available only to Level 60 players who have already beaten Normal, Nightmare, and Hell difficulties, Inferno represents Diablo 3′s Elder Game, where hardcore players will farm the all the most desirable loot.
Blizzard had an experienced test group on hand to fine-tune Inferno’s challenge, and these testers thought they had arrived at the right level of difficulty. The developers, however, knew better. “We doubled it. Because we knew, no matter how good we are, our players are gonna be better,” Wilson said. “We focused on making [Inferno] as difficult as we could make it.”
Despite these extreme measures, it will still be possible to solo Inferno, though players who take advantage of groups and class synergies will have a slightly easier time.
